    2007 Acura RDX

    Worst Paint I have ever seen! GPS stinks!

    Pros: SHAWD

    Cons: PAINT JOB

    I have the White Pearl Paint and the front and rear plastic bumpers do not match the rest of the car. They both have a distinct yellow tint. ACURA says they are all this way and refuses to do anything! The GPS shows the name of the street you are on, not the street you are coming up to. GPS voice response is unreliable at best. Note that I was born in southern California and have little if not no accent No touch screen means that you have to use the dial to enter data, a real big negative. The SHAWD makes this the best handling car I have ever driven. I would like more power however. Very poor fuel economy! I added a Garmin GPS for under the cost of the map update and its far better.

    2008 Acura RDX

    Pros: turbo charger, comfort seats, handling, everything

    Cons: nothing

    this is the most exciting car i have ever owned and i have driven 4WD from aspen co., to nyc, but not in the luxury and handling of this RDX. i told the salesman that i didnt think this car would handle snow and ice, i was wrong...it is a tough one especially with its turbo charger. i will always live in an ACURA from now on.

    2007 Acura RDX

    Truck

    Pros: No one in particular, but the sum of all the normal things which would be extra on other vehicles

    Cons: ride and noise

    This is a sport mini and I should have know better than to buy it. It is noisey and rides rough as a 6 ton truck. It handles great, never had a problem, and get good service. Still, for me, it makes too much noise on 19 inch truck tires and the ride is too rough. I made a mistake.

    2007 Acura RDX

    Never buy an Acura

    Pros: The thought of getting rid of it

    Cons: Workmanship

    The quality of this car is shockingly shoddy. We had rattles, things that didn't work (nav system; speakers; even the Acura road service--we were told no one was available and just tough luck to us with our flat tire!!!) and problems from the start. The latest horror was a heater core that failed at 60,000 miles. And again at 62,000 miles. And then a radiator that leaked at 63,000 miles. Total cost to us: $3500. When contacted, Acura said none of it was their fault, and we were just out of luck. Clearly, none of this should happen at such low mileage. Shoddy construction, poor workmanship and even worse 'customer service.' I will never buy another one of these cars, and neither should you.

    2010 Acura RDX

    Lousy -- so many better options out there

    Pros: None

    Cons: Noise, etc

    Acura tried to save money by omitting certain necessary features. No heating or AC vents in the back. Terrible visibility and loud engine noise due to 4 cyl. engine. The Muran, for one, is a lot better choice.

    2008 Acura RDX - Base

    Pros: Extremely good handling

    Cons: Poor quality

    Advice: Don't

    I have had this vehicle for a little over two years. The overall quality is just not there door moldings falling off armrest leather stretching. Handling has been absolutely superb, but at a high cost of low mileage per gallon, very disappointing for a four-cylinder.
